Twitter reactions: England edge past Pakistan to win the second Test in Multan


Mark Wood grabbed four Pakistan wickets to hand England a series-clinching 26-run victory in the second Test at the Multan Cricket Stadium and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

The fast bowler finished with 4-65 as Pakistan were bundled out for 328 in the post-lunch session on Day 4, having been given a challenging target of 355.

Wood, who missed the first Test in Rawalpindi due to a hip injury, turned the match in England’s favour with the wickets of well-settled Mohammad Nawaz (45) and Saud Shakeel (94) in the space of just 12 balls.

Pakistan went down to 291-7 at lunch, and after the break, Agha Salman (20 not out) and Abrar Ahmed (17) tried their best to pull off an unlikely win for their side and keep the series alive. But James Anderson dismissed Ahmed, Wood cleaned up Zahid Mahmood (0) and Ollie Robinson picked up the wicket of number eleven Mohammad Ali (0), sparking celebrations in the Three Lions camp.

“We had a look at the wicket and it was tricky against slow bowling, but as the game progressed the cracks opened up and our seamers came into the game,” said the winning captain Ben Stokes in the post-match presentation.

“The way in which Jimmy and Robbo bowled in the series and our spinners as well, they are going to deliver more often that not [referring to himself not bowling in the second Test].”
